Engineering & Robotics

Specialized Academic Programs

Program Description

The Pallotti Engineering Program is a rigorous, project-based learning, high school program that prepares students to succeed in college and in the workplace through collaborative problem solving. Students will learn sketching, 3D modeling, as well as coding and robotics.


Through the Engineering Program, students will get the opportunity to:

Gain experience and the opportunity to try for a certification in Autodesk Fusion360, Inventor, and Revit, code and build robots and automated assembly lines, use a CNC, Filament 3D printer, Resin 3D Printer, and Laser cutter, and sequence robotic arm movements.


Current PLTW classes we offer:

  • Engineering Essentials
  • Introduction to Engineering Design
  • Computer Integrated Manufacturing
  • Civil Engineering and Architecture

COMPUTER SCIENCE

Program Description

Our Computer Programming courses allow students to be exposed to the most popular and in demand coding languages. These high in demand skills will allow them to pursue jobs in their desired field.


When students enter the program they should have some coding experience, but it is not necessary.


Programming Courses Offered:

Through our demanding program students will be exposed to C#, HTML, Java Script, and Python. Students start off in Intro to Programming where they learn the foundations of coding. They can then take Game design which focuses on writing code for games. As the students continue to progress through the program they have the option to take two AP computer sciences courses: Computer Science Principles and Computer Science A.

Program Description

The ASAP Program is intended to identify the top15% of science students every year and have them begin their academic progress on a more rigorous course than the college preparatory curriculum map. The goal is for each ASAP student to be able to complete the required core science classes ahead of schedule, thus allowing for them to have more freedom to pursue our many elective and AP options as juniors and seniors.


Students accepted into the program take Honors Biology as freshman and Honors Chemistry as sophomores. During their sophomore year, students have the option to double up on science taking Honors Chemistry and an additional science course. This allows the ASAP students much more flexibility in their junior and senior years to choose which science courses best interest them.


Current Advanced Science courses offered are:

  • Human Anatomy and Physiology
  • Zoology
  • Honor Physics
  • Marine Biology
  • Food Chemistry
  • AP Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Science
